    HitFix wrote an article on Skyfall’s tech nominees, specifically Roger Deakins (Cinematography, 0-9), Thomas Newman (Original Score, 0-10), and Greg P. Russell (Sound Mixing, 0-15), and how they have a combined record of 0-34 at the previous Oscars. Amazing. Now, with another nomination for each of these men, let’s hope their losing streaks end.

    Funny you should mention that. While I am currently thinking that “Life of Pi” will take Cinematography and “Les Mis” has a good shot at Sound Mixing, a win for “Skyfall” in any of these categories would not surprise me. I know that Adele won the Globe for her song in the film, and the Globe win is almost always death to a songwriter’s Oscar chances, but I find it hilarious that she might be the Bond films best hopes at a trophy this year.

    Cinematography – Life of Pi ( Runner up, Anna Karenina )
    Costume Design – Anna Karenina ( Runner up, Lincoln )
    Film Editing – Zero Dark Thirty ( Runner up, Argo )
    Makeup and Hairstyling – The Hobbit ( Runner up, Hitchcock )
    Production Design – Anna Karenina ( Runner up, Les Miserables )
    Sound Editing – Life of Pi ( Runner up, Zero Dark Thirty )
    Sound Mixing – Life of Pi ( Runner up, Les Miserables )
    Visual Effects – Life of Pi ( Runner up, The Hobbit )

    conclusion: Life of Pi will be the new Hugo. Getting at least 4-5 technical oscars.

    I think Pi takes cinematography and visual effects. Maybe Production Design over “Karenina” (but I think that the Joe Wright film will take this one and costume). I don’t think it will win the sound categories though. I think “Argo” and “Zero Dark Thirty” are. I wouldn’t be surprised if “Life Of Pi” wins though.

    It’s too bad that Deakins is the living DP with most losses, and that he is only 3 nominations away from tying the biggest loser ever in the category. He should’ve won at least once by now. Very odd how it hasn’t happened yet. And also very annoying how this category seems to be going to one that fells like the most effort instead of the best effort. I take consolation in the fact that DPs out of the academy seem to be confused by the winners most of the time as well.

    This years crop of tech nominees is the worst I’ve seen in YEARS. I almost don’t even care who wins. I simply don’t agree with probably 75% of them. Cinematography is particularly off base. Roger Deakins, my absolute favorite currently working (Lubezki is up there too) will probably lose. If he loses to Les Mis, I just don’t know if I will be able to take them seriously anymore. For the first time in probably more than a decade I care more about the acting races than the techs which is a sad day for me.

    I don’t think there will be a sweep by any film across the top 8 and the tech categories too, so there will be a split between two big films come Oscar night, I believe LIFE OF PI could win from 4-5 Oscars w/ the Technical branches:

    • Cinematography
    • Score
    • Visual Effects
    • Sound Mixing
    • Sound Editing  

      With another film, most likely LINCOLN or ARGO depending on PGA/DGA results, dominating the top 8, and winning Best Editing.
